Deceased Charlottesville Protester Heather Heyer’s Mother Delivers Defiant Memorial Speech

By Koh Mochizuki

Heather Heyer's mother was composed and eloquent in her eulogy for her daughter's memorial.

"We know that what she did was achievable," Susan Bro said of her deceased daughter, who was recently killed when a car drove into a crowd protesting the neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville. "We don't all have to die. We don't all have to sacrifice our lives."

But Bro was also very firm when she referred to those who participated in the white nationalist rally. "They tried to kill my child to shut her up," she told the 1,000 mourners attending Wednesday's service. "Well guess what? You just magnified her."

Her defiant memorial speech elicited rousing approval from those attending, further affirming that Heather's memory will be kept alive and that her voice will continue to be heard.
